Mini Cotay Earrings
More of a visual aside than a statement, these adorable little earrings are handmade from larger fused Argentium sterling silver circles linked with smaller half-hitch Byzantine stations in either Argentium sterling silver, yellow goldfill or rose goldfill. Uniquely beautiful, these earrings flatter the wearer alone, or as a set with the matching Cotay Bracelet and Necklace. Ear wires are handmade Argentium sterling silver. Length is 1 1/4" total.
Argentium sterling silver is a modern tarnish-resistant sterling silver alloy which modifies the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) by replacing some of the copper with the metalloid germanium. As it retains the 92.5% silver content of the traditional alloy, it is still referred to as sterling silver. (Wikipedia)
